There is so much to think about when it comes to home accessories and decor. You’ve got to choose home accessories for your bookshelves, your coffee table, your walls and just about every other space you can think of. Fortunately, home decor doesn’t have to be so stressful! “Tablescaping” is an easy way to create a one-of-a-kind look and feel in your home decor.
What are Tablescapes?
Tablescapes is a relatively new home decor term that is often used for a more “elegant” or ornate table setting. It typically includes not only the centerpieces, but also the plates and other dishes included into the space. Side note: “elegant” does not necessarily mean ornate or overly decorated. Sometimes a simple, basic setting and table decor can be all that is needed for an elegant, classy look!
That being said, tablescapes aren’t actually just limited to the dining room table. The term can refer to a plethora of different tables such as the coffee table, night stands, side tables and other areas that aren’t technically “tables,” such as the fireplace mantel.
Create a Theme
The easiest and most effective way to create a tablescape is through the use of a theme. For example, your table decor could include a set of silver candlestick holders. You can mix the look with small potted cacti for a rustic glamorous look. Finally, complete this table decor with the table setting: plates, forks, knives, glasses and of course, a napkin and napkin ring at each setting.
Theme ideas include the usual suspects: holidays, birthdays, floral themes, animal themes, color-inspired themes and so forth.
